How We Broke Democracy (But Not in the Way You Think)
Tobias Rose-Stockwell

This is a great article and very informative. I hope some will also find my article about America’s polarization enlightening. It’s worth noting, however, that this polarization started well before Facebook or even the internet became popular —Fox News & MSNBC came earlier, as did the physical separation between the 11 cultures of America and between urban and rural folks. I think polarization is related to political corruption, too; I think politicians have deprioritized many solutions Americans could have agreed on because they weren’t good for fundraising, then blamed “the other side” for why the underlying issues weren’t addressed.
